Movie Info

In the dark world of intelligence and espionage there are shadows without faces and faces without names. Governments fight shadow battles through these soldiers of the unknown. Battles have no rules, no limits. Nobody on the outside knows what goes on in these secret organizations. All information is guarded in the name of national security. But some stories escape the fiercely guarded classified files, stories that become legends. This is a film about one such story, a story that is spoken about only in hushed whispers, a story that shook the very foundation of this dark world. But like all reports that come out of this uncertain world, nobody will ever confirm those events. It may or may not have happened. -- (C) Official Sitemore

Salman Khan dazzles in rollicking -- and romantic -- Indian action thriller.

Top Critic

Result boasts some excellent action sequences, most performed by megastar Salman Khan, and indeed is generally more effective in fight scenes than in hearts-and-flowers mode.

Tiger and Zoya both make good kung fu street fighters, but as spies they're unconvincing, and as lovers they're cookie-cutter bland.

Top Critic

Ek Tha Tiger is a gripping action film with the world of espionage as a backdrop and romance at its core.

Digital Spy

Ek Tha Tiger's lack of logic and script loopholes prove inconsequential to enjoying the film.

Full Review… | April 17, 2015

The leads lack the kind of chemistry that would have fully engaged audiences, and the director's reliance upon Khan's straight-to-camera smouldering and Kaif's doe-eyed longing becomes tiresome.

Audience Reviews for Ek Tha Tiger

Able direction. Shoestring story. Mixed-bag script devoid of much logic. Sallu throwing around his charisma. Kats showing some expressions here and there but generally is hammy as always, despite looking like a million bucks, as always. Fantastic supporting turns by Girish Karnad and Ranvir Shorey. Exotic locales, as always in a yrf film. First Indian film shot in Cuba, I guess. Bourne-ish action, mostly well executed, though stunt doubles aren't that difficult to spot. Decent music. Audience going mad at the drop of a hat. Yeah, I guess that sums it up.
